Sonnen Was Ready To Put Wanderlei And His ‘Scumbag’ Friends Down During Public Scuffle

“I don’t like street fighting. I don’t like to hear about it. It’s unprofessional and I’m not advocating any of this. However, I will not let a guy within arm’s distance. Wanderlei, if his finger he was pointing touched me, I would have put him down right there. I would have had no choice. I must defend myself. And he had three friends — these odds aren’t great for me. I want to take down as many of these scumbags as I can while I can. You’re going to show that you had to build up this courage to come and mutter at a guy, with three friends? I think that was the most confusing thing, for me. If I was doing the publicity stunt, I’m going to go, ‘All right, guys, listen. That backfired. That thing goes in the fireplace.’”

During last week’s Mr. Olympia event, Chael Sonnen was confronted by Wanderlei Silva.

The stunt was recorded and has now been featured on UFC Tonight and in a Wanderlei Silva blog.

In a recent interview with, Chael P. Sonnen, discussed the incident and what may have happened if it escalated beyond just an exchange of words.
